Georgia Republic Climate & Weather
Georgia Republic Climate and Weather
Georgia has a warm, temperate climate. The Likhi mountain range divides the country into western and eastern halves, shielding the eastern part of the country from the influence of the Black Sea, and creating a continental climate. The average temperature in the east in summer ranges between 60°F to 75°F (20°C - 24°C) and in winter ranges between 36°F to 39°F (2°C - 4°C).
The western Georgia experiences a sub-tropical, maritime climate and in summer the average temperature is 72°F (22°C), dropping to 41°F (5°C) in winter. The western part of the country can get humid and experiences rainfall throughout the year, although it is at its heaviest in the autumn and winter months. In the east rainfall peaks in spring and winter is the driest season; although the mountainous areas receive a lot of rain, generally the amount of rainfall decreases with distance from the coast.
The best time to visit Georgia, whether you're travelling to the mountains or the coast, is during summer. The weather is at its sunniest and most pleasant in May, June and September. However, as the climate of the country varies somewhat from region to region it is worth checking out exactly what to expect for your particular destination.
